    I guess you will have to use the Caculator link below.

    Thanks Jeff, I have the serial number plate but nothing more , is the rear axle code in the serial number somehow ? .. 659CK59-578978 I'm thinking that the Canadian serial numbers may be different...Thanks..Lex

    It was common for 6 cyl 3 speeds to have the 3:89 ratio but after all these years who knows if a swap was done by a previous owner,a 3:89 ratio would give good off the line performance. Tire Size, RPM, Speed, and Differential Ratio Calculator

    Look in your door plate for this code: Rear Axle Ratio Codes For 1957 - 1959 - Ford Parts

    Hey Jeff, hope this finds you well and you had a great summer, ours goes by so fast it's painful. I'm not sure where you live so maybe you don't have a winter where you have to put your car away for a few months. I put a lot of miles on my wagon this summer and it ran real nice, cruises on the highway at 70 mph all day. As usual, I have a question for you . I'm thinking about changing the gears in my rear end and was hoping you might be able to help me out . Originally the car had a 6 in it with a 3 spd. std. trans. I've looked at the rear end and can't seem to find any type of a tag that would give me an idea what gears are in it at this time. Is there a chart anywhere that might list what gearing Ford used with their cars in 1959? Also, what would you recommend I look for for gearing if I do decide to change it, I would like a little more performance out of it in the bottom end. Thanks for the help ...Lex
